FaZe Clan pro Fortnite player Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney is known for his incredible skill, great accuracy and smarts, but one of his sickest moments, was when he was literally sick, mid tournament.
Back in the second week of the Fortnite Fall Skirmish, Tfue was suffering from an illness and had to throw up mid stream, and then went on to win the tournament
In homage to this memorable moment, a creative fan has designed an in-game emote using the ‘Jonesy’ default skin – which looks like Tfue, if he was a Fortnite character.
The emote concept was posted to Twitter and caught the attention of Tfue, who shared it to his own followers, perhaps in the hope that Epic Games themselves might see.
The creator of the concept, @dosentine, is a designer and video game fan, who in the past has done other work for content creators.
This one sees the Jonesy skin throwing up into a bucket, just like his doppleganger Tfue did recently during the Fall Skirmish – although thankfully Dosentine has spared us the sound and visual elements.

Whether or not Epic would actually add such an emote, isn’t that far of a stretch, considering they have in the past added specific items at the behest of top Fortnite personalities.
Earlier in 2018, they added the ‘Plunja’ pick axe, an item inspired by a toilet plunger, after top Fortnite streamer Ninja had jokingly requested it.
Epic Games is also running their ‘Support-A-Creator‘ promotion currently, which proves that they recognize how important these popular Fortnite YouTubers and streamers are for the continued success of the game.
